I also sent a email of what I put here to some people and I was asked - How much of this did you research yourself? I'll answer here as I did in the email. I added the sources to where I obtained the stuff. No, I did not trace anything. So, the answer is -- No, I did not research this myself. Is this true? I don't know how much or if any of this is true, so do your own research!
Many in my family have always "just believed" the Church and in the Bible. I started to ask questions and dig deeper ... Much to the dismay of family and friends.
The Old Testament teaches that Astrologist's should be put to death. Judaism and Christianity
have in the past tried to wipe out Astrology and the mystery schools because people could see where they derived some of their prophecy, stories, and knowledge from.
Just some of the tools of war are: hate, racism, religion, money, self inflicted casualties, and false flag operations. Religion takes care of hate and even backs the killing of other peoples. It seems to have no boundaries on how far it will go. Racism through it's own form of mind-control is a powerful and nasty weapon. One should be careful when it is ok to push things like some belief on people while refusing to do the same yourself. War is a constant theme of the Judaic religions. War is also profitable for the defense industry and others who benefit
. Our leaders found that instead of instituting a draft for war, they could cause an area to become impoverished, then it's citizen's would climb over each other to enlist in the bloody killing machine - An age old tactic that works. Historical patterns show us that self inflicted wounds are routinely used to garner national support for war. False flag operations could be self inflicted wounds or they could be an unknown (perfect) enemy inflicting a wound on another enemy to get the two fighting. Sound familiar? This is the best tool of war as it leaves the instigators untouched. We must be able to discern who benefits and to see who instigates.
Is this Christian hating? No. Christianity is no more worse than any other religion / related religion. Is it used to control people? Yes. Are there evil people who use Christianity to take advantage of others? Yes. The same can be said for all other religions. It is about keeping the people behind them. They want you subservient and quiet.

The Epic of Gilgamesh and Noah's Ark
Worldwide flood caused by rain would destroy everything
A single righteous man: Ut-Napishtim or Noah
The main characters were instructed to build an ark of wood with compartments, and have a single door
The arc settled on a mountain in the Middle East
Two birds returned to the ark, but not the third
An animal was offered as a sacrifice upon landing
The Gods in both stories expressed remorse for what they did

ARE CHRISTMAS AND EASTER "PAGAN"?
"One occasionally hears the accusation that early Christians derived Christmas and Easter from pagan celebrations, and that these feasts are therefore pagan (though overlaid with a thin veneer of Christianity). How much truth is there in this assertion?"

Zoroastrianism: a Shadowy but Powerful Presence in the Judeo-Christian World.
"The impact of particular Zoroastrian beliefs has been postulated on Greeks at (400 B.C.) - that is, on certain of the early Ionian philosophers, and on Plato and his school - and has been traced in some exilic and post-exilic parts of the Old Testament; but not until well after the downfall of the Achaemenians that doctrines appear in Jewish writings which eventually, in Pharisaic Judaism and Christianity, came to form an eschatological system markedly similar to the Zoroastrian one...."

Something I pointed out in another post. I pasted here it to save typing it again.
This is about waking up to truths that can be both difficult and hard to bear. It isn't
just about religion, but many different things.
The religion part in beginning points out some stuff that plenty of other folks have tried to point out for years. There is a grief process when someone who doesn't know about this sort of thing, finally hears it all.
For those of us who share this kind of information with others should keep in mind this "is" a grief process. So when someone lashes out at us, we can be assured they are just going through the stages. So, a good idea might be to -not- take it personally. believe me I know, as I went through this process, with the Anger and Depression portions, lasting the longest. The truth will set you free !
